Help with a7rii negative enlarger setup. Manual macro lens?


i am am looking to buy an a7rii, a 16-35mm and a 24-240mm lens. A bit of an outlay, but I am excited.

one project that I have been putting off for years is scanning negatives. Both colour and b+w, mostly 35mm strips but a few hundred medium format negatives as well.

to do this, I have two options. Use an enlarger lens, with a billows, etc. But I think this not for me.

instead I was planning to purchase a manual macro lens and an adapted. Maybe a canon fd 100mm for example.

any suggestions or advice would be most welcome.
